SAO PAULO, March 27 Brazil's agriculture
ministry said Monday that it had ordered three more food
processing facilities to suspend production amid an
investigation into alleged corruption of inspectors and
unsanitary conditions in the world's biggest meat producer.
That brings to six the number of food processing plants that
have been ordered closed by Brazilian authorities. A total of 21
plants are included in a police investigation, and are not
allowed to export any product, though they are still able to
produce for the domestic market.
